Estate Notes

Le Fonti’s Vito Arturo 2011 is the most recent release of the estate's top cuvée - a sophisticated, spicy Tuscan red oozing quality and refinement, which just keeps getting better with every vintage. A phenomenal wine, especially given its very modest price.

The two-hectare Vito Arturo vineyard was the first to be replanted in 1991, and is now producing the estate’s best grapes from a fantastic situation renowned for producing wines with satin-like tannins.

Reviews

Beautiful mineral purity giving freshness to ripe black cherry, red fruits and kirsch with high notes of violet and rose, exotic spice, and savoury undertones of sweet leather, truffle and dark chocolate. Sumptuous velvety palate, richly concentrated, with fresh balance, deep mineral base, and layered fruit and tannins ; large macerated development with lush fruit, finishing very long and fresh. Superb.
